Sympathy Card – Time Out Challenge #95

I have made a sympathy card for the latest challenge at Time Out Challenges….there was an optional twist of distressing but I decided not to incorporate that for my card…the main flower image of my card is from Mama Elephant Freesias stamp set…

I die cut the front panel from watercolour cardstock using cross stitched rectangle die and then stamped the flower image using Versamark ink…I heat embossed this with some white embossing powder and masked it with a hand cut paper mask…
I then dabbed some weathered wood Distress Ink on an acrylic block and mixed it with a lot of water and quickly did a kind of a wash all over…I also used the same ink mixed with less water and splattered it over the panel…

I then removed the mask and coloured in the image using Gansai Tambi watercolors…once dry,I stamped the sentiment using Versafine onyx black ink and adhered the front panel to a plain white card base…

Instead of adding embellishments to my card,I first used my sparkle marker over the image and then added some glossy accents for a bit of shine and dimension without going over the top..

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Hope you will have a happy and blessed day today…!!

Scrapbook Boutique MAY Challenge – Two Cards

While I struggled with the last challenge which had pastel colours in the moodboard,for this month’s challenge at Scrapbook Boutique Blog I had a couple of ideas as soon as I looked at the board….I made two cards and decided to share them both..

For my first card I chose a plain white card base and watercolour paper top layer…I first coloured in the whole background with light pink water colour and gave it a bit of ombre effect(which you can’t really see in the picture)..once dry,I repeat stamped the snowing stamp using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder…I also smudged some ink on all sides of the top layer and heat embossed that with gold embossing powder as well…

On a separate piece of watercolour paper,I stamped the freesias using pink dye ink and then again with Versamark ink and heat embossed them using clear embossing powder…my Misti came in super handy for this…I coloured in the flowers using Peerless watercolours and cut them out and placed them on the card…

I stamped the sentiment on a small white label and layered it with a gold label and die cut some sequins to embellish this card…I also used my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to make the flowers glitter and shine..

For my second card I chose a white base as well and die cut watercolour cardstock for the top layer using stitched rectangle die and then stamped the fairy stamp on it….I masked the fairy and then created another paper mask using one of my border dies and masked the top section of the card…

I used raspberry sorbet and spun sugar Distress Inks to cover the unmasked section and then removed all the masks…using watercolour pencils and my blender pen,I coloured in just a few sections of the stamped image…

I stamped the sentiment and punched a few small butterflies using gold foil cardstock to embellish the card…
